At the ripe age of 23, I'm getting nostalgic for my youth, and nothing warms my heart more than the humble Nintendo Wii. As a devout Nintendo fan, my fondest memories were formed when dangerously swinging at my TV during a heated game of Wii sports – and increasingly it seems I'm not alone.

As Gen Alpha slowly usurps the Zoomer (that's me), we Gen Z elders are finally free to revel in nostalgia. Call me bitter, but it feels like retro game consoles get all the love and there's a severe deficit of appreciation for the Wii. It raised a generation and I won't let it fade into obscurity – here's to the Wii revival.
